He is wearing a beret and a ruffled cravat which falls into the vest beneath his overcoat. The pedestal he sits on has leaves and horns and is marked under the torso "wagner". The veining within the alabaster is a light golden caramel. The bust is 7" tall and 4 1/2" shoulder to shoulder. There are no chips or breaks to this lovely piece. Excellent condition.
